Allan Savory’s, Nov 13-16, Sweden journey began with him giving a speech in Stockholm for the Antonia Ax:son Johnson Foundation for Sustainable Development, a mixture of businessmen, researchers and innovators got their eyes opened for new perspectives by Allan.
Next day a group of students at the Swedish University of agricultural Sciences in Uppsala helped Fjällbete to arrange a seminar named, "Holy Cow - Cows Can Save The Climate!" Practitoners from Sweden Denmark and Norway shared their experiences from Holistic planned grazing under Nordic conditions and the seminar generated a lot of interest from media.
Following day Allan met with people from the Swedish ministry of rural affairs discussing future policies regarding agriculture in Sweden. Allan also met with a number of interested people, (among them, Anders Wijkman chairman for the club of Rome etc), who expressed their willingness to support the cause of Savory Institute and the Nordic Savory Hub to be.
As the "grand finale" of Allan's days in Sweden Allan was the main feature at a new sustainability conference in Åre (Sweden's largest ski destination and home of Fjällbete) called Åre Sustainability Summit, where Holistic Management was put into context for sustainable development together with the Swedish concept for locally controlled crowd equity funding.
Allan gave two speeches during the second day of Åre Sustainability Summit. In the first one he talked about Holistic Management and in the second one about Holistic Planned Grazing.
The last night in Sweden Allan spent together with the “Fjällbete crew”. We had a very pleasant evening celebrating a couple of days that cannot be described as nothing else but a big success.
Thank you Allan, and thank you Savory Institute for enabling us to perform this great leap for the establishment of the Nordic Savory Hub.
